will not this just be a safe source of working numbers for all those covered by exceptions?
Q: If I register my number on the National Do Not Call Registry, will it stop all telemarketing calls?
A: No. Placing your number on the National Do Not Call Registry will stop most, but not all, telemarketing calls. Some
businesses are exempt from the national registry and still can call you even if you place your number on it. Exempt
long-distance phone companies
banks and credit unions; and
the business of insurance, to the extent that it is regulated by state law.
However, many telemarketing calls are placed by professional telemarketing companies, and even if the company whose
goods or services are being sold is exempt, the telemarketing company may be covered.
You may still receive calls from political organizations, charities, telephone surveyors or companies with which you
have an existing business relationship.
The FCC has initiated a rulemaking proceeding that would extend the National Do Not Call Registry to many of the
businesses that are exempt from FTC coverage.

They don't quite have all the bugs out. I gave them three
but they only sent two confirmations.
